Gold color. Earthy aromas and flavors of fresh bread crust, hint of creamed spinach, hard boiled egg with grits and saltines, and wet grass with a supple, crisp, effervescent, medium body and a tingling, breezy lettuce and sprouts, wet grain, peppered bamboo shoot, and minerals finish. A pristine and refreshing Helles that will hit the spot.

Munich helles lagers are pale to golden in color and range in alcohol from 4.5-5.5%. These beers traditionally malt-accented with subtle hop character. They are generally weightier than standard pale lagers though less substantial than dortmunder export styles. The finest examples still come from the brewing center of Munich and are relatively easy to find in major US markets. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Full Sail LTD 03, Hofbräu Original Lager and Paulaner Original Munich Premium Lager.
